    Hi all.

    Out for a walk with my wife today. Great weather. These are all taken with my Sony A7 and Olympus 85 f2. Various apertures. Did not really keep track. Due to a foolish error on my part (exp comp set to -.7) I have had to tweak most of photos in some way. Some I just tweaked because I wanted to see what could be done with the Efex software package. Feel free to comment. Good or bad.

    Nice work.

    Fun to travel with your own photographer.

    The greens in the foliage is sooo gorgeous! Reminds me of Fuji Reala film.

    Cool! I was just looking for this lens lens last night. Looks contrasty and pretty sharp with an occasional nervous bokeh like my om 50 1.4. Great colors.

    In Pic#1 there is an interesting wavy pattern (below the camera, near the strap) --is this a result of something that was OOF in the background or foreground?

    I honestly don't know why it's wavy. I have noticed it in a few other photos though. I don't mind it. It just adds character to photo I think. It is one of my favourite lenses.

    A couple of my wife on Mother's Day. Shot between f2 and f5.6 if I remember correctly.

    What camera does your wife have? Looks like a Panasonic GX7 with an Olympus 75!

    BTW, the wavy bokeh is apparently normal. I saw someone on Dpreview with the same issue.

    You nailed it. I still have that lens and a couple others. If I don't sell them soon I'll end up with another Olympus camera.
